Bulldogs back on the winning track

Friday, February 01, 2013

 

Led by junior Alex Francis' season high 27 points, Bryant rolled past Fairleigh-Dickinson 78-63 Thursday night in Hackensack, NJ.

The win for the Bulldogs pushes their record to 14-6 on the year, and 7-2 in the Northeast Conference.  The seven league wins matches their previous best mark (in Division I) during the 2010-11 season.

Francis's 27 points were a game best for the Bulldogs as he fell just a single rebound shy of a double-double with a game high nine boards. Francis led four double-digit scorers for the Bryant, as sophomore sharpshooter Dyami Starks added 13 and Joe O'Shea chipped in 12 points with a career-best seven assists.

Corey Maynard added a season-best 16 points for Bryant, along with eight rebounds as the Bulldogs outrebounded the Knights 39-26, and shot 43% from the floor.  Of Bryant's 39 boards, 17 came on the offensive glass, and the Bulldogs capitalized on 17 FDU turnovers for 25 second-chance points on the night.

Bryant will stay put in the Garden State, and next face Monmouth Saturday night at 7:00 pm.
